I was so famished by 12 PM today, my lunch was enough for 4 and basically consisted of left overs plus a broccoli slaw salad.  By 1:45PM, I wanted something else so I had English Toffee Tea. I proceeded to finish off the 1/2 of that Jay Robb bar from yesterday and started into a Protein Diet bar.  wed-eats-0011

I’ll have to pace myself tonight with our seafood dinner. I was watching the Food Network this morn. while on the treadmill and they had a Phil’s Fish Market in CA featured. He made a Chiopino (not sure about the spelling) which I intend to try tonight. It looked great!  I checked out the website and he offers some interesting recipes. Ok.. getting hungry again.  Joanne talking to tummy: What’s happening in there?”

UPDATE:  TONIGHTS HAPPENINGS….

I was working on high speed all day. I’m still zippin’ around like a whirling dirvish. 

I made the cookie batter for peanut butter and choc. chip cookies and put in the fridge for baking either tomorrow eve. or this weekend. It also freezes well so that helps with getting a heads up on holiday baking.  In re- to the peanut butter, I’m using the Pillsbury Bake Off winning recipe. It’s a “stuffed” peanut butter cookie. They used the refrigerator Pillsbury dough but, as I said, I made my own.

So after the dough making, I set to with my seafood stew aka Chiopino.  I doused the seafood w/ lemon juice and that included salmon fillets, jumbo shrimp, sea scallops.  I heated 1 tbs olive oil (too hot cause I made quite the mess) then added some Mediterranean Seasoning/marinade (about 1/2 the jar). Added the 2 salmon fillets, topped those with the shrimp, topped the shrimp with the scallops. Poured Veggie broth and tomato basil soup on top. Added a pinch of saffron and let simmer. I was able to remove the skin off the salmon when it cooked and when the shrimp turn pink….wallah!  Done!  It was very good. I served it with boiled parsnips (boiled in veggie broth). Don’t you just love parsnips? They are so sweet.

Now, I’m going to try to wind down, check out some of my fav. sites and finish the Sudoku with Ted. We did the crossword and the word jumble already. Have a great night, All!

Up and about at the normal early hour. Started with a VPX shake. Ran for 26 minutes and ET’d for 10.  Ever notice that sometimes it takes a good 20 minutes before you find your running rhythm?  During that time you’re thinking, “should I stop now? … what hurts so I can justify stopping???”.. But then something “turns on” and you continue and it gets easy.  Go figure?!!!!  After the aerobics, went into a good back and tricep work out. Ended with a 36 minute jog with Shane.   Back & Tri W/O:

  • 4 x 15 V Bar Pull down. Superset w/ 4 x 12 Tricep Kick backs
  • 4 x 12 Long Bar Pull down. S/S w/ 4 x 12 2 hand tricep extension.
  • 4 x 12 V Bar Seated row (pictured). S/S w/ 4 x 12 1 hand each tricep extension(pictured).
  • 4 x 12 Wide Grip Seated row. S/S w/ 4 x 12 tricep dips off bench.
  • 3 x 10 wide grip pull ups. S/S w/ 4 x 10 suspended tricep dips.

  I let him run loose with me in the track at MV…scanning initially to make sure no one was in there. But it was dark and…well,  I didn’t see the dark shadow until it was too late. Shane went bounding up to the stranger with me tailing and yelling “He’s friendly”… Good thing this gent. has two little dogs and he was very nice while Shane ran and leaped and tried to steal his glove.  Apologies by the millions! 

I made the Your Choice Protein Pancake this morning. It came out too dry and, as I indicated in the posted recipe, I think it simply needs some fat added. The flavor is there due to the protein powder and the spices.  So for me, who prefers drier foods instead of saucy, creamy, running…etc., it was ok.
